Episode 197 – February 14, 2019

We’ll celebrate the big tent today with sounds that cross a wide plain…from new tracks released this past week from Kim Lenz and Hayes Carll to a subtle celebration of Black History Month here on KWTF Community Radio. We’ll hear classics from Josh White and Billie Holiday and we’ve also got some bright visionary pieces from Rhiannon Giddens, Ben Harper, and Galactic. And we’ll catch our breath and lean on brand new tracks from the Vandoliers, Gregory Alan Isakov, and I’m With Her. So, lend us an ear. If you’re a fan of Americana, you’ll find it here fresh from our Sonoma County community radio studios in Santa Rosa.
